JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Three quick takeaways from the Jaguars 19-13 win over the Titans:

Welcome back Rashad:

Rashad Green missed the past seven games due to a torn ligament in his left thumb. Earlier this week he said that he was just itching for the chance to get back on the field and he felt he could make a big impact in the return game. As it turned out the rookie was wise beyond his years. He put the Jaguars in position for their game winning touchdown by returning a punt 63 yards with just under four minutes to play.

Red-Zone woes:

One of the reasons the Jaguar found themselves trailing in the fourth quarter was because of their ineffectiveness in the red-zone. Outside of Blake Bortles finding Julius Thomas for a touchdown that gave the Jaguars a 16-13 lead over the Titans, they were down-right awful in the red-zone.

The Jaguars had previously failed to score on three trips inside the 20. It didn't help that Bortles also threw another interception with the Jaguars in scoring position.

In the end those miscues didn't cost Jacksonville a win but they've got to find a way to score touchdowns and not settle for field goals.

Your move Jaguars:

The Jaguars have now won back-to-back games for the first time since 2013. The AFC South is up for grabs and the Jaguars are just a game back of the division lead. They'll also play three of their next four at home and have the easiest remaining schedule in the NFL.
